Boeing, RER to Install Underwater Montreal Power Turbines

Boeing Co., the world’s largest planemaker, is working with RER Hydro Ltd. to install underwater turbines in the St. Lawrence River near Montreal with capacity to produce about 9 megawatts of electricity.

The companies plan to deploy 40 so-called hydrokinetic turbines that RER Hydro will build in Quebec, according to a statement today on Chicago-based Boeing’s website.

RER Hydro, based in Montreal, developed the technology and Boeing has exclusive rights to market it worldwide. This is the first commercial order for the systems, which the plane company said can produce power from rivers without requiring dams or other disruptions to marine life.

“One of the things Boeing hopes to do with this technology is to bring it to other countries, and also to provide the necessary engineering, supplies and management,” Robert Sterling, a Boeing spokesman, said in a telephone interview today.
